Last weekend Utah DESTROYED DISMANTLED DEMOLISHED the Oregon Ducks 62-20 (62!!!!!). It was the Ducks worst home loss since 1977. The consequence is that for first time since 2009 the Ducks are not ranked in the AP Top 25. On the other hand, the win has pushed Utah up to #10 in the standings. The only Pac-12 team ranked higher is #6 UCLA. Oregon travels to lowly Colorado this weekend. Oregon MUST win (need I say more?).
This past weekend Utah’s offense was practically unstoppable. And when the Ducks did force 4th down, the Ute’s carried out a successful fake punt. But possibly the best play of the game was an odd punt return the Utes executed to perfection, it even faked out the camera man.
Here is a highlight video of the best plays of the game.
Last weekend also featured a high scoring shootout in the Big-12 between #3 TCU (Texas Christian University) at Texas Tech. TCU won the game by the final score of 55-52. Here is a short video of TCU’s final play. Trailing 48-52, 29 seconds to play, fourth and goal from the four yard line.
This weekend College Football turns its attention to the SEC (South East Conference). There are three very important games that will set the stage for the conference race. The most important of these games is #13 Alabama visiting #8 Georgia. Over the past several seasons Alabama has been the best in the SEC. In 2013 Alabama won the National Championship and in 2014 represented the SEC in the National Championship Playoff. This weekend is Georgia’s chance to give Alabama its second loss of the 2015 season. A Georgia victory would push Alabama out of the national championship race and put Georgia in poll position to win the SEC championship.
